LINDA'S STORY

Linda Morganstein is an award-winning, overeducated fiction writer who happens to be the product of a Borscht Belt childhood in the Jewish hotels of the Catskills. In the seventies, she dropped out of Vassar College and drove a VW van to California, where she lived in Sonoma County for many years. Later, she studied creative writing with Jane Smiley in Iowa. She currently resides in the Twin Cities of Minnesota with her understanding spouse Melanie and her amazing new rescue dog, Courage.

On an ironic note concerning her dropping out of Vassar: It seems that the venerable institution considers a person to be an alumna even if one never graduated. Linda discovered herself listed among the "lost" on the Alumni web site. She is now officially "found." She actually feels cozy and reborn, in the recovering the past department.
